The Wonderful World of Babies (working title)


  • Voltage TV Productions

Project summary

In this innovative TV series, commissioned by BBC2, we will take the latest science out of the lab and into ordinary family homes by following 16 babies at different stages during the first two years of life. 

Anchored around a specially constructed BabyLab HQ designed to look and feel like a home, a team of developmental scientists will conduct a detailed naturalistic study of baby development. For six months, they will study the 16 families both in the HQ and in their homes, seamlessly moving between the lab and the living room as they explore some of the biggest unanswered questions in the field. 

The scientists will demonstrate their latest findings and generate new data about how babies’ brains change during this unprecedented time, shaping the adults they will eventually become.
